Avant Garde Magazine #8 next to the Command Print. Thought they made a nice pair. Avant Garde was a short lived art/culture magazine in the late 60’s-early 70’s. The magazine itself always had great art direction and layout, but it’s main contribution was, of course, Herb Lubalin’s logo which was the basis for the ITC Avant Garde typeface. This has always been a very controversial font in the design world, many claim it is overused and abused. Lubalin himself thought the face was misunderstood and overused, rendering it something of a 70’s cliché. Whatever the case may be, I have found it to be a striking and versatile font in my own work. The Madrone print is a good example of how I like to use Avant Garde, it’s strict forms and tight angles make perfect building blocks for large scale use.
This is a variant of the Svenska print I did that has yet to make it into printed form. I will be posting random variations of some of my released work to hopefully give a better look at the process of working through a design and refining the various elements. The original Svenska print is here and version 2 is here.
Welcome to the new front-end of ISO50. I’ve decided to shift the site into a blog format to make it easier to update and get more fresh content up. I will be posting all sorts of things, my own work, other’s work that I find inspirational, and anything design related that I think would make for good viewing. Your comments are welcome and appreciated, I will do my best to answer any questions.
You can always visit the ISO50 Portfolio to see all my work, or you can check out the ISO50 Shop for prints, clothing, music and more. The Blog will be located at blog.iso50.com, keep an eye on it for new work, unreleased stuff, and all things ISO50 / Tycho related.
